We are very sorry but we have taken the decision to cancel tonight’s classes. The weather conditions are very severe, and travel is not recommended. The safest thing to do is cancel the classes. Keep warm and keep practising the fiddle! We will see you again next week.
We are now taking bookings for the Spring Half-Term which runs from Weds 21st February. There will be five weeks of tuition, but as we can’t use the school on Weds 21st March, these classes will be held on Weds 28th March instead. We are hoping to organise a social event on Weds 21st March, which will be run on a drop-in basis, but won’t be included in the course.
Stewart and Grace have been delighted with the take-up of the places and the response of the students from the first half-term. We have taken on board everybody’s feedback and will be making slight changes to the format as we go forwards. There have been many requests for more time spent on exercises and less on learning new tunes and they are very happy to oblige! So the Technique and Style classes will use the same repertoire for this half-term, with the exercises and techniques taught in the first class being used to support the learning of the tune and the stylistic considerations of the second class.
There are limited spaces left in both ability levels at the moment, so do get in touch to reserve your place. The cost for the classes is £80 for five weeks of two classes per evening, or £45 for one class per evening (either Technique or Style).
Five week course (21st Feb – 28th Mar 2018. No classes on Weds 21st Mar)
Class 1 – Technque: 18:30 – 19:45
Class 2 – Style: 20:00 – 21:15
Both classes are available at two ability levels (Level 1: beginner/intermediate; Level 2: intermediate/advanced)
£80 for both classes each week, for five weeks
£45 for one class per week (Technique or Style)

Type: OAuthExceptionIsn't this beautiful? Shepherds Dene is such a peaceful location for our first Advanced Fiddle course back in person since restrictions eased. This will be a very small, intimate course, and there are just three places remaining.🎻 The material will include a couple of tunes to challenge your technique, tax your brain and torture your fingers as well as a whole batch of beautiful melodies where the emphasis will be stylistic interpretation. Evenings will offer an opportunity to play tunes together in a session, something which we have all sorely missed. 🎶 Fancy joining us?

We also can’t wait to see some of you in person on the 23rd! If you’d like more info, or are ready to book your place, then take a look on our website.The burning question right now though is where is Melissa? Bonus points if you can give the Gaelic name.

1 month agoWe hope you are all having a lovely summer! We have been enjoying a few days break from our computer screens but we are back with a burning question...What is your favourite 3/2 hornpipe? And did I mention it can't be of the rusty, dusty or even reedy variety? Trying to think up an answer for that should keep you all occupied for a few days 😉 ... See MoreSee Less
